Art Gallery Needed
Interest in architecture necessaril y implies interest in art.
The Mississippi Art Association is working enthusiastically on the
purchase of land and plans for the construction of a desperatel y needed
new Mississippi Art Gallery. This is an endeavor that should have the
interest and support of all Mississippians who are concerned with the
cultural growth of our state.
The present gallery houses a collection of valuable paintings and
the building-an old residence-is a firetrap. It is imperative that these
paintings be reposited in safe quarters.
Some of the statewide benefits of a new gall ery are enumerated by
the Association as follows:
*circulate original art objects throughout the state.
*encourage and assist cultural gTOUpS in de\"eloping art projects 111
*provide adequate facilities for storage and shipping, thereby
enabling the Association to share with other Mississippi cit ies
the Association's permanent collection.
*receive and show the best traveling exhibits including origina ls
by the Old Masters
*stimulate interest and learning by showing fine art to the school
children of Mississippi
*enhance cultural advantages for all Mississippians
vVe encourage you to show your interest by becoming a member
of the Mississippi Art Association 111 one of the following categories:

The transformati on which occurs when the lights

World's fairs traditionall y have been vehicles for
the introducti on of new li ght sources, li ghting tech·

General Electric lighting consultant to many
fairs and expositions.
The ew York Fair surpasses all previous ones
in lighting innovati ons which make it a memorable
visual experience, he said.
Cutl er said G.E. is empl oying the fair as a show-
case for the application of nearl y a dozen new lamp
types. Many of these, he predicted, wi ll be important
in the illumination of homes, streets and hi ghways,

what may be the world's largest transilluminated walls. Th.
building is constructed as a large "space frame," and exterior
facades measure 6S feet high and the length of a football field

the base and top, is a SOO-watt G-E quartz-iodine lamp, whose
light transilluminates the exterior surface of multi-colored glass.
The 100story high entrance canopy of the Gen .. ral Motors Fu-

Nazareth Hospital addition, recently completed
in Philadelphia. Representing an ultra-modern
concept 'in hospital planning, the structure is
designed to prevent any above-ground catas-
trophe from interfering with the performance of
vital services. The extensive use of marble, both
inside and out, proves the modern value of this
timeless building material.
OCATED just off Roosevelt Boulevard,
in Philadelphia, the recently com-
pleted nine-story addition to Nazareth
Hospital has been specifically designed
to prevent any above-ground catastrophe
from interfering with the performance
of vital services. With seven floors above
ground and two stories below ground,
this ultra-modern medical and surgical
facility incorporates features that radi-
cally alter many previous concepts of
hospital construction. But one standard
hospital design concept that has re-
mained as strong as ever is the reliance
on marble for those areas of the build-
ing where quiet elegance, lifetime dura-
bility and low maintenance are desired
Equipped with such features as triple
power supplies; bombproof surgical
suite ; radiation-resistant operating
rooms, X-ray, and central supply; dual
water supplies; and combination fueled-
boilers, the new addition gives Nazareth
Hospital a total capacity of more than
Significant is the choice of materials
for this showplace of modern hospital
construction is the extensive use made
of timeless marble. Vermont Eureka
Danby marble with a honed finish was
selected for the exterior front and sides
of the first and second stories above
ground. This marble is used also for
pilasters and for a longitudinal band
above the pilasters. Granox Cedar
marble is used for window sills, and as
decorative panels beneath the windows.
In the visitors' lobby, Vermont's Italian
White Cremo Delchetto marble is used
for wall surfaces and on two opposite
sides of each of the columns. This
marble is also employed for thresholds.
Architects are Henry D. Dagit & Son.

LONG-STANDING problem of bOoth architects and
metalworkers-that of making wide areas of
metal sheathing look attractive-is being licked ...
by rolling with the punch. More accurately: if you
can't lick 'em ... join 'em!
In the unique answer to a headache that has
plagued fabricators and designers back to the days
of knights in armor may well be a brand new boom-
let for rt he "design-rolling" field of metalworking.
More specifically, the problem-which has kept
sheet metal off many surface areas of buildings-
is the built-in tendency of smooth metal to reflect
annoying glare from either sun or artificial lighting.
With this, too, the smooth metal surfaces-because
of their very smoothness-show up stains, mars,
Design-rolling imposes upon smooth metal sheet a geometric,
three-dimensional design which does away with the "dirty-
mirror" patina of smooth metal . In photo at top right,
note the smooth metal with its reflections moving through the
mill at Rigidized Metals Corp., Buffalo. In photo above, the
outgoing end of the same mill, the smooth sheet has been
design-rolled . . . not its "matte" finish, no longer reflective.
General view of the new Republic Steel Research Center in
Independence, Ohio, finds the patterned stainless sheets-above
and below the windows-assuming an over ... 11 tone of blue.
As with the dots in a half.tone, the separate design elemenls
are not apparent, but in the aggregate they serve to vary the

stone bruises, and even the very slightest of off-true
The industry's answer to smooth metal's bad habits
is to "unsmooth" it! Mars, scratches, blemishes,
dents, and li ght-glare spots all add up to one thing :
smoothness is no longer ·there anyway __ . so let's
1m-smooth it at the start, but do so with an attrac-
tive pattern that actually takes advantage of un-
evenness. To do this, sheet metal- most commonl y
in building work stainless steel or aluminum-is
" design-rolled. "
Ri gidized Metals Corporation of Buffalo, pioneer
design-rolling firm and farthest-reaching in . its field
with its 70 distributors, points out that the design-
rolling art has reached the zenith of its appl ications,
thus far, this year. The New York World's Fair's
huge centerpiece trademark, the "Unisphere" (R)
uses design-rolled steel instead of smooth . metal for
the "land areas" on the griant globe. Ri gidized itself
supplied some 40,000 square feet of design-rolled
stainless steel for the purpose. The tall world-of-
tomorrow style entrance towers of the Fair, made up
of slanting rectangles of steel, is another example of
design.rolled use. Those rectangles are design-rolled
Richard S. Smith, a former steel salesman who
saw possibilities in design-rolling and quit a secure
job to start Rigidized Metals, sees a growing market
potential in design-rolled metal for architectural use.
The very pattern used on the Unisphere, he related,
is currently being pushed by U.S. Steel's American
Bridge Division as an ideal choice for building cur-
tain wall panels. A comparatively coarse geometric
design, the Unisphere pattern, close up, presents the
aspect of a landscape of ponds and pools and golf
course sand traps. The farther away one stands in
viewing it, the more the pattern assumes a uniform

canning" normally resulting from wide surface treat-
ment with smooth metol.
patina, a "matte finish"-instead of smooth metal's
" dirty-mirror" finish, as one executive of Ri gidized
Metals phrased it.
In the world of construction, too, design-rolled
metal is finding increasing employment for interior
applications. The range is virtually as wide-poten-
tially- as the use of metal in any form for surfacing.
The examples include trim components for lobbies,
elevators, escalators, stairway stringers, doors, lock-
ers, scuff plates, ductwork, air conditioning housing,
grill work, and phone booths.
No matter where the application for design-rolled
metal may be found, says Dick Smith, it serves es-
sentially the same three-pronged purpose, that of
providing a surface which foils annoying glare, com-
pletely camoflages dents, mars and stains which may
accumulate ... and increases the structural strength
of the metal.
To dramatize the virtues of his own Rigid-tex
design-rolled metal, Smith placed on the wall of his
Buffalo plant two framed panels. One is a sheet of
bare stainless steel. The other is an identical sheet
which has been design-rolled with the pattern used
for the Unisphere. When you visit him, Dick Smith
will invite you to throw stones at both panels. You
hurl a stone at the smooth metal and an ugly dent
pops up where your stone hit. By now, that panel
is a badly-scarred and unaesthetic mass of stone
bruises. Throw a stone at the design-rolled sheet.
You see it hit. It made an impression. You're chal-
lenged to' find where it hit. The design-rolled panel
looks as fresh and new as the day it came out of the
design-rolling mill. The moral is plain to understand:
"If you can't lick ' em ... join 'em!"
That way, you do lick 'em_
Gabe' s Inn, a twelve story cylinder shaped motel in
Owensboro, Kentucky, featur e s a roof-t op pool and
lounge covered by a transparent acrylic pla.tic dome.
Architect : R. Ben Johnson.
yEAR round swimming and relaxation is provided
for guests at the new Gabe's Inn, Owensboro,
Kentucky, by a movable, transparent, acrylic plastic:
cover over the pool and lounge area on the buildinp's
top floor. The lightwei ght, weather resistant Plexi-
glas acrylic plastic cover provides an attractive and
distinctive touch to the twelve story, cylinder shaped
motel designed by R. Ben Johnson.
The dome-like enclosure contains some 4,000
square feet of Plexiglas. It consists of twelve acrylic
plastic panels that resemble pieces of a pie_ Six of
the panels are stationary and six ride on metal rails
enabling them to be opened or closed as the weather
dictates. For the summer season, the panels are slid
into their open position allowing comfortable breezes
to circulate through the roof area. During inclement
weather, the Plexiglas panels are easily closed to
protect the swimmers and guests in the lounge. Plexi-
glas acrylic plastic, a product of Rohm & Haas Com-
pany, was chosen for the cover because of its breakage
resistance, transparency, lightweight and outstanding
weatherability. The acrylic panels are unaffected by
rain, sun, wind, and snow and will retain their trans-
parency even after years of outdoor exposure.
Both pool and lounge areas are heated in winter.
Fans in each area blow hot air directly on the under-
side of the Plexiglas panels. This effectively prevents
moist ure condensation.
A special crane was used to lift the metal framed,
acrylic plastic sections to the top of the 110' hi gh

VISITORS to Niagara Falls these days are being reo
warded by two magnificent views, one new, the
other timeless. The view is the marvelously simple
spire of the Seagram Tower, rising more than 300
feet above the edge of the Niagara Gorge. The time·
less view is newly appreciated from the crown of the
Tower, from which one sees the panorama of Horse·
shoe Falls, Goat Island, the Gorge, and all the rest
of the natural wonder that is Niagara.
The Tower is a simple shaft of concrete and steel
rising ,to a seven-story crown whose average diameter
is 70 ft. From its base to the tip of the flagpole atop
the crown, the structure rears 325 ft. in the air on
the Canadian side of Rainbow Bridge in the town
of Niagara Falls. Its owners, Niagara Tower Co.,
Ltd., state that it is the first concrete·and·steel struc·
ture of its kind on the North American Continent.
The structure sits behind Oakes Drive and Portage
Road in the Canadian tourist town, dominating the
river landscape from just north of an old Niagara
Falls landmark, the Table Rock House. Its slim,
clean lines are repeated-like those of that other
spire which is only a little. taller, The Washington
Monument-in a reflecting pool that stretches west·
ward from its base.

Li ... ited Height Building
HI LE a dwindling supply of available commer-
cial property continues to heighten Southern
California's "high rise fever, " there yet remains a
vast fi eld for the small office building developer.
Irving Shapiro, A.LA. , emphatically made this
point clear while planning the new office structure
now in the "finishing touches" stage at 7033 Sunset
Given suitable zoning in a revitalized area, should
the developer go high rise or limit the height-
and consequently the rentable area?
This question today confronts builders and archi·
tects throughout Southern California, Shapiro de-
So much favor is being given to hi gh rise con-
struction by both developers and financing institu-
tions in the Los Angeles area, Shapiro explained,
that the smaller office building is often discarded m
favor of the larger project.
Basically, he added, the current market value of
commercial locations seems to indicate only one use
of the property to owners and developers- high rise,
even though it may not produce the greatest econo-
mic use of the property.
Given a site in the center of a block with a 60
foot frontage and a depth of 200 feet, Shapiro de-
signed the building at 7033 Sunset for three stories_
